A Message From Our School Leader
Mrs. Erin Taylor
UCA School Principal
Hello Students and Families!
We are in the home stretch. It is hard to believe that we are talking about spring break, state testing,
graduation and Intent to Return for next year. What an incredible year it has been. We have had more
in person events this year and teachers and staff have exclaimed how wonderful it is to see their
students and meet families. We have had many, many club meetings and activities and it is wonderful
to see the variety of interests that our staff and students have.
As the School Leader it is so rewarding to read the webmails and text messages that come through
where students and Learning Coaches are giving their teacher or Advisor a shout out. I always pass the
compliments on and take the time to thank that staff member for their dedication to students. It is
equally satisfying to read the statements that accompany the UCA All Star Student Award winners, or
the student awards in Elementary for working in their math or reading program. There are so many signs of excellence in the school that it makes it so enjoyable to come to work each day and celebrate.
Every student that puts forth their best effort is a winner. As educators, we constantly stress the
importance of effort. A student who has great attendance at Live Lessons, spends time on all their
assignments and gets help from their teacher when they need it, is a student who will make their own
success. We also are incredibly appreciative for the commitment of the Learning Coaches and families
that support UCA and all that we do. We see you! We appreciate you and we are so glad when we get a chance to talk to you and get to know you.
Please know that we will always strive to do things better and in a way that serves students even better than we do today. There is nothing more important to you than your student, and are honored to be your school of choice.
Have a great rest of week and keep up this wonderful momentum!
